BCC research estimates that the global environmental sensor and monitoring business grows from $13.2 billion in 2014 to nearly $17.6 billion in 2019, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9 percent.*
Embedded sensors of various types are used for everything from pollution monitoring to land management, supplementing or replacing on-site inspections.

These technologies help agencies execute their missions, but also raise issues concerning the definition and resolution of violations in a real-time monitoring environment. Embedded sensors in “smart cities” enable continuous monitoring of weather conditions, air quality and home energy consumption.
